(UPDATED) A cousin of slain Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog was gunned down in Purok Malinawon, Barangay Tinago, Ozamiz City late Monday afternoon, police said Tuesday.

Sandy Daroy, 36, was shot by unidentified motorcycle-riding assailants outside his house past 5 p.m.

Mayor Parojinog and his kin were among 16 people killed last July 30, 2017, when their family's security personnel allegedly fought policemen who were supposed to serve search warrants.

The same operation led to the arrest of Ozamiz Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog and her brother Reynaldo Jr. following the alleged discovery of half a kilo of shabu in their home.

Supt. Lemuel Gonda, spokesperson of Police Regional Office in Northern Mindanao, said they are still investigating the motive behind the killing.

The victim earned a living by selling fashion accessories. - report from Maan Macapagal, ABS-CBN News
